Our client, a 52 year old woman, was hit head-on by a drunk driver. Luckily, her injuries were not as serious as they could have been and she fully recovered. The drunk driver's insurance company made a low settlement offer because they felt she just wasn't hurt. After we filed suit and took the drunk driver's deposition, they settled for $110,000. This case involved punitive damages against the drunk driver, due to his intoxication. You can read more on punitive damages in this site's "Drunk Driving" page.
